The Best Way to Determine Lip Lift Costs
The very best way to determine the cost of your lip lift is always with an in-person consultation with our surgeon, Dr. Eric Ahn. He will help you determine which type of lip lift is best for your needs and desired aesthetic outcomes. His staff will be happy to discuss payment options with you at the time of your consultation and answer all other questions you may have.
Factors That Influence Lip Lift Costs
A lip lift is an in-office surgical procedure that shortens the space between the nose and the top of the lip. It increases the amount of lip that is visible which makes them look fuller and more pronounced.
Because lip lifts are considered to be cosmetic in nature, most insurance companies will not cover their cost. This means that the total cost is the responsibility of the individual.
Here are some of the factors that will determine the cost of your lip lift:
1. The Skill Level of Your Surgeon:
You will not want to try to save money on the surgeon you choose. Be sure that your surgeon is Board Certified and has years of experience performing lip lifts. Read customer reviews and view their before and after galleries to determine if their aesthetic sense is compatible with yours.

2. The Location of Your Surgeon:
Simply put, the cost of living in various regions of the country can vary greatly. The cost of living directly impacts the cost of goods and services in that region.
3. The Type of Lip Lift You Select:
There are several types of lip lift procedures. Patients can opt for a Direct Lip Lift that creates a more defined border and a larger area of “pink” showing or a Corner Lip Lift that will create a more smiley appearance. Other types include subnasal lifts, central lip lifts, or Italian lifts. Each of these procedures varies in price.
